  • Red Bugs, their baaaaack!

    Well, I guess the suggested 3 dosages of Interceptor are still the mandatory. I dosed 2 times last treatment in February. In taking pics today I noticed the little buggers.



    I guess I do it all over again, this time I WILL do all 3 treatments.

                first time I dosed twice and that didn't get them all, then I dosed 3 times and they showed up again a few weeks later. I dosed 1 final time and haven't seen them since. the key here is to keep on the lookout for them and be prepared to dose again and again until they are all gone (IMO), that and good QT practices..
